The San Box is a modern beachfront house offering a private boardwalk to the gulf and nearby Saint Joseph's Bay offers ample opportunity for kayaking, snorkeling, and, fishing.

The newly constructed 4-bedroom home overlooks the Gulf with beach views from two levels of wide, covered decks. On the ground floor, you will find convenient covered parking, a BBQ grill, private pool, and an outdoor shower with plenty of space for all your beach gear. Take the private walkway directly to the water for sandcastles and fun in the waves, or cool off at your fenced-in private swimming pool.

Inside, an open-concept living area greets you on the second floor with high ceilings and modern furnishings. A comfy, full-length sofa and matching loveseat frame a large flat-screen TV for movie nights after a day at the beach, while the kitchen offers plenty of room for social cooking with four seats at the breakfast bar. Seat 6-8 guests at the formal dining table, or enjoy dinner with a view at the al fresco dining table on the deck.

With three couple’s suites and bunk bed room, The San Box is idea for large families or a group of friends. Each bedroom is uniquely styled with modern beach decor. The primary and guest primary bedrooms each have a private entrance to the deck and en-suite bathroom with dual sinks and a step-in shower. All bedrooms have wall-paneled TVs.

In addition to its beachfront location, The San Box has its own private pool for guests to enjoy.

This home lies just across the road from the 8-mile Logger Head walking and biking path. This path runs from the beginning of Cape San Blas Road to the State Park, making The San Box is a great choice for biking and walking enthusiasts that don’t want to give up their lifestyle even on vacation.

Your reservation includes $250 worth of beach gear. That's right! Rent a beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards, and more for your stay.

Salinas Park is within walking distance with a volleyball court, restrooms, and screened picnic areas. For shopping, Port St. Joe is less than ten miles away and Apalachicola is 23 miles.

Robin : Our unit fit our needs and desires well. It was clean upon arrival and in a location we liked. I would recommend scheduling maintenance issues on check in/out days when guests are not in the home. On our second day, we returned from the beach to get into the private pool, but someone was checking on the pool. He told us he would be adding acid to the pool and we’d need to stay out for 45 minutes. So we headed inside to wait. When we entered the unit, pest control had just finished spraying the inside of the house. I understand this service is necessary and do not mind it at all; however, this should not be completed while guests are in the home. The floors were soaked. Bug spray was actually dripping off of closet doors. The areas around furniture like beds, sofas, and chairs had been sprayed. There was absolutely no where to step without walking through bug spray.

Airbnb g: The San Box was a beautiful home in a beautiful location! The pool was great to have, because during our stay Red Tide was really bad in the gulf so we ended up spending a lot of time at the pool instead of on the beach. The kitchen was great and the beds were comfy. The views from the decks were spectacular!

Property Manager Response: Thanks for your review, Avigail. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us at The San Box! Thank you for being our guest, and we look forward to having you back in the future.

Airbnb g: The house is great. Very clean and well kept. Hosts are very responsive and took good care of us. Private walkway to the beach. The pool was really great for us with red tide being out. We couldn’t stay at the beach long, most of the day, so the pool was great to have! Great kitchen, living space, and lots of beds and bedrooms. We had a great time!

Property Manager Response: Hi Nick. We appreciate your review, and we're pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at The San Box. Thank you for being our guest, and we look forward to having you back again soon!

Dawn : We really enjoyed the evening sunset rides. We couldn’t imagine renting without having bikes to ride. We rode them everyday! They were there when we got there. Couldn’t be more convenient!

Matthew : The home was beautiful and in a perfect location for getting to restaurants. Only things to change would be better internet if possible, plastic cups and plates (kids), and sheets for trundle bed. Would have given a 10 but the first night we were there I found the master king bed mattress was installed upside down and had to flip and reinstall sheets. Also the master bath had left over soap and a wet shower mat. The rest of the stay went flawlessly and we will definitely use Natural Retreats Again.
